Uncommon early 10 x 8 glossy news photo of a young Diana lying in bed, with a young man seated behind her, and a bottle of Ballantine’s Finest Scotch Whiskey sitting on the window sill. Stamped February 1981 on back, the image is clear. The image has crop lines and ‘Not to be published’ handwritten on the front. Note on back, otherwise light wear. A super early image quite possibly never seen by the public. RR Auction COA.
Christmas card from 1993, 8 x 6 folded, opens to 16 x 6, embossed in gold on the outside with the family arms. Inside, the card bears a charming color satin-finish 5.5 x 4 color family photograph of Diana, William, and Harry posing in front of a tapestry. Printed opposite the photograph is the sentiment “Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year 1993.” Diana has inscribed the card, ”Dearest Jayne,” and signed at the bottom, “lots of love from Diana and the boys!” In fine condition, with some stray ink marks next to printed sentiment. Accompanied by the original transmittal envelope, addressed by Diana, “Jayne,” and signed in the lower left corner, “D.” Also accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed to Jayne Kear at Walt Disney World Corporation. Despite the absence of Prince Charles in the photograph or in the card, the couple was still married. It was not until 1996 that the divorce was finalized.
